Re: 842MBR vs 842SJR

Congrats on the collection lol. What are your favorite specific Loomis models? Which line of rods is your favorite as a whole? I kind of skip all over with models but I really like the 842S GLX for all purpose. I ike nrx too but never been a fan of XF action rods. I did grab a NRX 901S but have not...

Re: 842MBR vs 842SJR

Re: 842MBR vs 842SJR

I have the 842S in the newest GLX and the 842S in a conquest. I love them both but the conquest rods have more power and can handle a larger bait if compared to a GLX or NRX.

Re: G. Loomis rods

I ended up sending my conquest in and G. Loomis rewrapped the guide and sent back. Great services and was impressed with the quick shipping.

I hope the new handle design looks like the new Tesla truck.

Re: St. Croix stagnating?

Agree, love the xtreme and the elite but handles are not the most comfortable.

G. Loomis rods

Hey guys, let me start off by saying I really enjoy fishing Loomis rods and have several from baitcasting to fly rods.
